  1. Rat Behavior
    I've noticed this when I take my rats out for playtime. They'll be bouncing around, clearly happy and playful and then I'll scoop them up and they sort of flail or wiggle around in my hand.

    Hello! This is my first post, and it's quite a broad topic. I'm not a first-time rat owner, and I'm experienced with skittish and occasionally nippy rescues for that matter, But I feel like I've found myself in a relatively odd position with my new pair. Recently I took home a pair of PEW...

    Hi, I have three rats - Templeton, Toby and Todd. They are around 8 months old and came from the same litter from a breeder. Over the course of a few months, Templeton has been barbering Toby to the point where he has symmetrical bald spots on his shoulders and sometimes has small scabs from...
